POLAR BEARS UNLIKELY TO THRIVE ON LAND-BASED DIETS.
Polar bears, increasingly forced on shore due to sea ice loss, may be eating terrestrial foods including berries, birds and eggs, but any nutritional gains are limited to a few individuals and likely cannot compensate for lost opportunities to consume their traditional, lipid-rich prey -- ice seals http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/04/150401133025.htm

The 21st century will present gloomy challenges for Costa Rica and the rest of Latin America, such as the collapse of wildlife habitats, animal extinction, water scarcity and the spread of disease in an already vulnerable population.

The United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) laid out this forecast on March 31, as one of its region-by-region follow-ups to the September global assessment on climate change. The reports collect over 12,000 peer-reviewed scientific papers looking at climate’s future impact on environments and society, with the intention of preparing regional leaders to adapt.

THICH NHAT HANH

ONLY LOVE FOR MOTHER EARTH CAN SAVE US FROM CLIMATE CHANGE. Leading spiritual teacher warns that if people cannot save themselves from their own suffering, how can they be expected to worry about the plight of Mother Earth. "By recognising the inter-connectedness of all life, we can move beyond the idea that we are separate selves and expand our compassion and love in such a way that we take action to protect the Earth."

    Thay suggests that our search for fame, wealth, power and sexual gratification provides the perfect refuge for people to hide from the truth about the many challenges facing the world.

 Are Humanity's dealings with Nature sustainable? What is the status of the Human Person in a world where science predominates? How should we perceive Nature and what is a good relationship between Humanity and Nature? Should one expect the global economic growth that has been experienced over the past six decades to continue for the foreseeable future? Should we be confident that knowledge and skills will increase in such ways as to lessen Humanity's reliance on Nature despite our increasing economic activity and growing numbers? Is the growing gap between the world's rich and world's poor in their reliance on natural resources a consequence of those growths?
Contemporary discussions on the questions are now several decades old. If they have remained alive and are frequently shrill, it is because two opposing empirical perspectives shape them. http://www.casinapioiv.va/content/accademia/en/events/2014/sustainable.html

pdjmoo's insight:

"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security."~ Albert Einstein

                                "YEARS OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY"

               Premieres Sunday on Showtime, April 13 at 10PM EDT/PDT.

Showtime has posted online the entire video of Episode 1, airing April 12, 2014 of its visually and emotionally gripping documentary series event, “Years of Living Dangerously,” produced by James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jerry Weintraub — and former 60 Minutes producers. Watch it here.

http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2014/04/07/3423139/episode-1-showtime-years-of-living-dangerously/

 

This is not just going to be a landmark climate change series, it is going to be a landmark television series. It is what everyone is going to be talking about from April to June. As the latest international climate report makes clear, climate change is happening right here, right now — in America and around the world. It is the biggest story of our time, and it needs a big platform to tell it.

World Bank and UN carbon offset scheme 'complicit' in genocidal land grabs

World Bank and UN carbon offset scheme 'complicit' in genocidal land grabs | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

Nafeez Ahmed: Plight of Kenya's indigenous Sengwer shows carbon offsets are empowering corporate recolonisation of the South

 

Guardian, July 03, 2014

WORLD BANK AND UN CARBON OFFSET SCHEME 'COMPLICIT' IN GENOCIDAL LAND GRAB

UN's REDD scheme promises carbon offsetting will empower local communities in the developing world while conserving forests - but critics say the scheme is fuelling genocidal evictions of indigenous people from their lands. Between 2000 and 2010, a total of 500 million acres of land in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean was acquired or negotiated under deals brokered on behalf of foreign governments or transnational corporations.

     Many such deals are geared toward growing crops or biofuels for export to richer, developed countries – with the consequence that small-holder farmers are displaced from their land and lose their livelihood while local communities go hungry.

     The concentration of ownership of the world's farmland in the hands of powerful investors and corporations is rapidly accelerating, driven by resource scarcity and, thus, rising prices. According to a new report by the US land rights organisation Grain: "The powerful demands of food and energy industries are shifting farmland and water away from direct local food production to the production of commodities for industrial processing."

Less known factors, however, include 'conservation' and 'carbon offsetting.'   http://www.theguardian.com/environment/earth-insight/2014/jul/03/world-bank-un-redd-genocide-land-carbon-grab-sengwer-kenya

Climate Change Promises Tough Times for Asia and Africa – Report

Climate Change Promises Tough Times for Asia and Africa – Report | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

UXBRIDGE, Canada, Jun 20 2013 (IPS) - Extreme heat, flooding and water and food shortages will rock South Asia and Africa by 2030 and render large sections of cities inhabitable, if the world continues to burn huge amounts of coal, oil and gas, the World Bank is warning.

“Turn Down the Heat: Climate Extremes, Regional Impacts and the Case for Resilience“, a new report commissioned by the World Bank analysed the expected effects on South Asia and Africa if global temperatures increase by two and four degrees Celsius.

The report showed that a global temperature rise of two degrees Celsius will have a wide range of dangerous effects, including a loss of 40 to 80 percent of cropland in Africa and rising sea levels that will destroy significant parts of many coastal cities in South Asia.... http://www.ipsnews.net/2013/06/climate-change-promises-tough-times-for-asia-and-africa-report/

▶ AUSTRALIA: 'ABNORMALLY EARLY' BUSHFIRE SEASON PROMPTS CALL FOR MORE RESOURCES http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/aug/07/abnormally-early-bushfire-season-prompts-call-for-more-resources

 

The World Post, January 26, 2014

▶  AUSTRALIAN HONEY BEES UNABLE TO MAKE HONEY : THEIR HIVES ARE MELTING AS TEMPERATURES SOAR.

    Australia's hottest spring on record has spawn droughts and intense heatwaves; it has been disastrous for honeybees as their hives are melting whilst temperatures soar.

    Plants have responded to the stifling heatwaves this summer (2014) across the Australian continent by substantially lowering nectar production. Bees require nectar to make honey -- their only food source.

Aussie honeybees are also contending with another crisis this summer as climate disruption has their colonies operating in an emergency mode. Bees store their honey in honeycomb cells made of beeswax, which is now melting because daytime temperatures regularly exceed 95 degrees F.

    It would be prudent for Australian's to scrutinize all processed foods labels, foreign honey will be used when the following wording appears: "Made in Australia from local honey and imported ingredients."

There's a lot more at stake here than just processed foods.

    Australia's commercial bees are vividly showing scientists the knock-on effect from climate disruption. The occurrence and frequency of heatwaves and droughts are predicted to double, globally; therefore we can expect more bees unable to make honey, and pollinate plants including most of our food crops. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-reese-halter/australian-honeybees-unable-to-make-honey_b_4670475.html

.............. 

China is the world's biggest honey producer and it will supply Australia with honey. China, however, uses many banned chemicals and faux honey syrups so Australian Customs and Border Protection Service will be faced with additional costs of thoroughly examining and testing thousands of tons of imported honey. India and Malaysia are other honey exporting nations vying to supply Australia. This much we know about climate disruption: The price of Australian food is set to rise, again.

It would be prudent for Australian's to scrutinize all processed foods labels, foreign honey will be used when the following wording appears: "Made in Australia from local honey and imported ingredients."

There's a lot more at stake here than just processed foods. Australia's commercial bees are vividly showing scientists the knock-on effect from climate disruption. The occurrence and frequency of heatwaves and droughts are predicted to double, globally; therefore we can expect more bees unable to make honey, and pollinate plants including most of our food crops.

Residents of Jhirpu Phulpingkatt, a village nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, about 110 km from Nepal’s capital Kathmandu, are on red alert.

...experts warn that the lakes are filling up faster than ever before and new lakes are being created at an alarming rate.

“If climate warming continues, as is predicted, accelerated glacial thinning and retreat are likely,” Pradeep Mool, programme coordinator at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) in Kathmandu, told IPS, warning that “the danger posed by glacial lake outburst floods will increase.”... http://www.ipsnews.net/2013/06/the-himalayas-are-changing-for-the-worse/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

THE ECONOMICS OF GLOBAL WARMING AND CLIMATE DENIAL - David Suzuki

In failing to act on global warming, many leaders are putting jobs and economic prosperity at risk, according to recent studies. It’s suicidal, both economically and literally, to focus on the fossil fuel industry’s limited, short-term economic benefits at the expense of long-term prosperity, human health and the natural systems, plants and animals that make our well-being and survival possible. Those who refuse to take climate change seriously are subjecting us to enormous economic risks and foregoing the numerous benefits that solutions would bring...http://ecowatch.com/2014/07/08/economics-of-global-warming/

      OpEd by Henry M. Paulson Jr., Fmr. US Treasury Secretary

 

  "THERE is a time for weighing evidence and a time for acting. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned throughout my work in finance, government and conservation, it is to act before problems become too big to manage.

For too many years, we failed to rein in the excesses building up in the nation’s financial markets.

          When the credit bubble burst in 2008, the damage was devastating. Millions suffered. Many still do.

We’re making the same mistake today with climate change. We’re staring down a climate bubble that poses enormous risks to both our environment and economy. The warning signs are clear and growing more urgent as the risks go unchecked.

         "We are building up excesses (debt in 2008, greenhouse gas emissions that are trapping heat now). Our government policies are flawed (incentivizing us to borrow too much to finance homes then, and encouraging the overuse of carbon-based fuels now). Our experts (financial experts then, climate scientists now) try to understand what they see and to model possible futures. And the outsize risks have the potential to be tremendously damaging (to a globalized economy then, and the global climate now)" http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/22/opinion/sunday/lessons-for-climate-change-in-the-2008-recession.html?_r=0

It marks the point at which the earth’s climate begins to cease resembling what has come before and moves into a new state, one where heat records are routinely shattered and what once was considered extreme will become the norm. http://e360.yale.edu/feature/interview_camilo_mora_where_will_earth_head_after_its_climate_departure/2783/

▶  CARBON STORAGE, SEQUESTRATION ' AS BAD AS NUCLEAR WASTE' A Danish climate geophysicist scientist, Prof. Gary Shaffer, has published a paper criticising carbon sequestration - the idea of dealing with CO2 emissions by stuffing the greenhouse gas away into underground or deep-sea storage where it (supposedly) can't affect the atmosphere.
The more commonly advocated plan of pumping CO2 into disused oil or gas fields doesn't meet with Shaffer's approval either. He points out that these subterranean/subsea reservoirs are scarcely leak-proof.... http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/06/28/sequestration_no_no_shaffer/

FIRE IN THE HOLE:  AFTER FRACKING COMES COAL - IF YOU THOUGHT SHALE GAS WAS A NIGHTMARE, YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET  - Dantean inferno of underground coal gasification (UCG)
   A subterranean world of previously ignored reserves is about to be opened up. These are the vast coal deposits that have proved unreachable by conventional mining, along with gas deposits around them. To the horror of anyone concerned about climate change, modern miners want to set fire to these deep coal seams and capture the gases this creates for industry and power generation. Some say this will provide energy security for generations to come. Others warn that it is a whole new way to fry the planet.

Largely uncontrolled gas companies in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve are already drilling and fracking in much of the park, endangering precious water and environmental resources.
In Botswana’s longest running court battle the San Bushmen finally won the right to access these water sources and remain in their ancestral land. If the gas industry operates like it does in the USA their victory and the survival of this ancient culture is in question.

June 17, 2013 Hill Times Online

-▶  ... a new and highly-disturbing report from the International Energy Agency warns that “the world is not on track to limit the long-term rise in the average global temperature to two degrees Celsius,” and that, based on the present course, the long-term average temperature increase is likely to be somewhere between 3.6 degrees Celsius and 5.3 degrees. Such an increase would bring highly disruptive change that would not only be hugely costly but deeply threatening to human society.

Scientific evidence shows that “our climate is already changing and that we should expect extreme weather events (such as storms, floods, and heat waves) to become more frequent and intense, as well as increasing global temperatures and rising sea levels,” the IEA warns.... http://www.hilltimes.com/opinion-piece/2013/06/17/world-can%E2%80%99t-wait-until-2020-on-climate-change-says-new-highly-disturbing/35071

  -▶  IN THE MIDST OF RECORD OIL BOOM, OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SEEKS MORE OIL PRODUCTION.

America produced an average of 7.5 million barrels of crude oil per day in 2013, an increase of one million barrels per day and the biggest one-year jump in the nation’s history, FuelFix reported Thursday. The U.S. Energy Information Association (EIA) estimates production will grow by another one million barrels in 2014 and will peak at a whopping 9.5 million barrels per day in 2016.

And the production surge doesn’t stop at the water’s edge. According to FuelFix, “the Gulf of Mexico also is seeing a boost, with oil production expected to grow to 1.4 million barrels per day in 2014, up by 100,000 barrels.”.. http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2013/12/27/3105211/obama-administration-oil-production/#

pdjmoo's insight:

Amazingly, so little mention of environmental degradation.  This is the central core for all discussion for, without our natural world we do not exist.  The degradation of our ecosystems, biodiversity and poisoning of our planet is the absolute focus for all discussions.   Much of the rape and pillage going on is irreversible and the massive imbalance of the planet  tells us that there WILL BE a horrendous planetary biological chain-reaction and unforeseen repercussions, no matter what we do. Unbridled consumption is driving us to destruction.  The era of the industrial, military paternal mindset is over.  It has led us to the brink of destruction.  Women, indigeneous and youth are rising and their voices must be heard. An entirely new systems paradigm is required to restore and bring our Planet back to health.  If we were to focus on restoring our environment to health, a new template for economics would automatically form and a new job force would emerge.

Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States: 2014 National Climate Assessment

Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States: 2014 National Climate Assessment | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

-                    UNDERSTANDING CLIMATE CHANGE, May 05, 2014

On May 5, the National Climate Assessment published its third report, “Climate Change Impacts in the United States.”

http://www.globalchange.gov/

 

The report assembled by more than 300 experts guided by a 60-member Federal Advisory Committee produced the report, which was extensively reviewed by the public and experts, including federal agencies and a panel of the National Academy of Sciences.

The report distills scientific peer-reviewed research, technical reports and other sources. Scientists have documented that climate change — happening now at accelerating rates — is caused by human activities, leading to extensive and damaging impacts that the American people need to prepare for and respond to.

Explore highlights of the National Climate Assessment including an Overview, the report’s 12 overarching findings, and a summary of impacts by region. Download the extensive full report http://nca2014.globalchange.gov/highlights/overview/overview#intro-section

Why climate change gets the silent treatment, and what we should do about it.

This week, in an encore broadcast, scientist Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, joins Bill to describe his efforts to galvanize communities over what’s arguably the greatest single threat facing humanity. Leiserowitz, who specializes in the psychology of risk perception, knows better than anyone if people are willing to change their behavior to make a difference... http://billmoyers.com/episode/encore-ending-the-silence-on-climate-change/

pdjmoo's insight:

Climate Change is the RESULT not the cause.  It is a combination of factors and behaviors we have been engaging in over the past centuries that have depleted and devasted our ecosystems, biodiversity and environments that have created an imbalance in our biosphere that it cannot absorb or maintain. Emptying our oceans; urban growth; CO2 emissions into atmosphere; destruction of nature's biodiversity balance; pesticides poisoning soils, species and water changing the eco and chemical balance.  Big Agriculture and it's dependence on fossilfuels.

Do we want to live in a world devoid of nature, wildlife, living off lab-created food and pharmaceuticals?

Our body is part of the greater planetary body - it is designed to respond to the outer circumstances of the greater web of life.  If we do not put our efforts to restoring it, we may well may become an extinct species on this planet by end of century.

Without our natural world we do not exist.  To the degree She is sick and out of balance so are we. 

Let us beginning responding to course correct.  Our fellow travellers (other species) on this planet are suffering and disappearing fast. This is within our power.
